Mrs. Price said she doesn't mind occasional fishing or shelling along the island's beachfront by area residents, but she cautioned that the island is not open to the nuhlic Island Is Private While "it has never been our intention to give it away," she said, she would never develop in a manner inconsistent with her 83-year-old husband's desires. He has always loved the beach and privacy. My interests wili be in protecting that." In fact, she's considering legai action against a local realty firm that lias included the privately-owned island >n a list nf amenities featured in a brochure promoting Sunset Beach. Expensive Venture If Bird island were ever developed commercially. It would lie a smallscale, expensive and time-consuming project, indicate representatives of the N.C. Office of Coastal Management and the U.S. Army Corps ol Engineers. For purposes of the 1982 Coastal Barrier Resources Act, Bird Island has been designated undeveloped, according to spokesman Katherinc Skinner of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Mercliant Murine and Fisheries. (Tile purpose of the act was to reduce investment of federal funds ir, a high-risk area, to minimize loss of human life and damage to fish, wildlife and other natural resources.I Tills means that federal funds would nui in: uvdiidua n? iiiii ?~i COHstruction oi facilities such as a bridge or sewer system. Property owners could not gel federal flood insurance Getting the designation changed would be difficult, she said. There is another alternative. "If they come up witli their own capital, tliey can do about what they want," Ms. Skinner indicated. At one time the island had a functioning well, electrical service and a narrow causeway road. "It can be done if they can get over the access hurdle, but it would l>c c-_-t!y and time-consuming, said Hob Moul, Wilmington field representative for the N.C. Office of Coastal Management. Mollis said much of the fill remains along lite elevated causeway huilt years ago by Price. More fill could be twVtlml where till remains, but nowhere else. "It would be one-lane in several places," he added. "The question is, 'Is the island developable'1' lie continued. "If somebody went at it in a prudent milliner it could he done without exorbitant expense. In my opinion."

SS meeting that would require all developers to present in person preliminary plat proposals to the board tor approval. According to Assistant County Manager John Harvey, a pattern has emerged among board members. They tend, he said, "to follow a subliminal policy of deferring action on preliminary plat proposals until representatives of the applicants are present at the meeting. "Generally, such deferrals have been in those cases where nijestinns have been posed, hut occasionally such a deferral has been simply for the reason no one was Dresent as spokesman," Harvey noted on the agenda of the board's Dec. 20 meeting. "It has been suggested the beard discuss this matter and if, indeed, it is intent, then declare the let ins of such policy ana iei persons in the development business know of such policy' " County Commission Chairman Chris Chappell, cx-officio member on the planning board, recommended an examination of ihe policy and re quested it be on the agenda of '.he Dec. 22 meeting. However, a motion was unanimously passed to delay discussion of the change in policy until ihc regular January meeting. The board held its December meeting at the Calabash town hall, followed by a Christmas dinner at a local restaurant Only one plat proposal needed action at the meeting.
